Christmas Q&A

Q: Why do we celebrate Christmas? 

A: Jesus’ Birth is celebrated. The famous passage in Luke 2:11 gives us the picture of what we celebrate:

“11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  - Luke 2:11

Christmas should cause us to leap for Joy (Luke 1:44) and also proclaim Christ as the Savior of the World (John 1:29) just like John the Baptist demonstrated. 

Q: What place in the Bible tells us the story of Jesus’ Birth?

A: In Luke 2:8-14. Jesus is designated as the anointed Savior. This means Jesus is the only one qualified to Save the world from Sin. Luke 1-2 shows us several poems and praises from those who realize the savior has been born. They serve as an example for us in this time of praise and celebration for Christ’s birth. One example is Luke 2:13-14, which is the motivation behind the hymn and Christmas carol ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’:

13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” – Luke 2:8-14

Q: What do Christ, Savior, Messiah, & Immanuel Mean? 


Q: Does Jesus’ birth mean He was created? 

A: No, Jesus was not created because he is self-existent before the creation (John 1:1-5). Jesus was the only begotten son (John 3:16), which is often mis-translated and should be translated as ‘the only unique Son’ that explained God fully (John 1:14, 18). Jesus is God and explains the essence of God (i.e. ‘deity’ in Col. 2:9). The Trinity explains that God is truly one in essence, but three in persons (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit).

Q: How should we pray & apply the Christmas Story?
